A Cure for Insomnia. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 12 March 1887
A Cure for Insomnia. Sleeping without the head covered is said to be one of the causes of insomnia, which has of late years become a very general malady. Some find a cure by tying a large handkerchief tightly around the temples under the cars in a small knot at the back of the head. Tile knot may be adopted or not according to the wearer's comfort or fancy. The bandage gives the required pressure on the outer surface of the head, the lack of which is one cause of sleeplessness.
The Paradise of the Poor. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 12 March 1887
The Paradise of the Poor. We had been told that there was not a poor person in Costa Rica, and had, of course, received this with mental reservations; but we were convincsd of the possible truth of the statement in a somewhat amusing manner. The governor, expressing some dissatisfaction at the slow progross of the works, was answered by the chief master workman with an easy flow of words and many emphatic gestures. The matter was simply that the men were all able to live without over exerting themselves, nearly every one of them owning a bit of ground, a horse, a wagon and a mule, and also a carefully secreted stocking with a handful of bright | pesos.
The Strike and its Lessons. WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE? [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 12 March 1887
The Strike and its Lessons. WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE? It is fitting that well disposed and thinking citizens of all classes should consider the crisis through which we have lately passed, in their common wish that the outrages and dangers to life, which have marked the maintenance of the late strike, may not again occur, or if again occurring, may meet with a prompt and forcible suppression at the outset. First comes the question, who are responsible for these acts of violence and for the dangers to which our families have been exposed in their transit through our streets? Is there but one answer, the strikers themselves? True it is that they have declared and passed resolutions denouncing these outrages in their meetings; they say, "we don't commit them—we are innocent! All threats, bulldozing, outrages, &lt;fee, are done by some others.*' Let us see. Who are the so-called "Spotters" or "Pickets'' who have been stationed about the street corners, to influence and bulldoze and th...

Take It This Month. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 12 March 1887
Take It This Month. Spring rapidly approaches, and it is important that everyone should be prepared for the depressing effects of the changing season. This is the time to purify the blood and strengthen the system, by taking Hood's Sarsaparilla, which stands unequaled as a spring medicine, and has endorsements of a character seldom given any proprietary medicine. A book containing statements of the many wonderful cures it has accomplished, will be sent upon application to ('. I. Hood &amp; Co., Apothecaries, Lowell, Mass. 100 doses One Dollar. —A surgical journal tells of a man who lived five years with a ball in his head. There are men in this town who never feel comfortable until they get several balls into them. —The Journal speaks of a girl getting into "a snarl" by having two lovers and engaging herself to both. Instead of a snarl, the difficulty appears to have lieen a double beau knot. —Take Ayer's Sarsaparilla, in tbe spring of the year, to purify the blood, invigora...
LETTER FROM THE SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 12 March 1887
LETTER FROM THE SOUTH. Commiuk, Miss., Feb. 27,1887. Dear Editor:—tit course you have heard of Birmingham, Ala., the "Magic City." it U a peculiarity of the Southern cities that they all have a distinguishing name In-side that which appears upon the map. Atlanta, the "Gate City;" Memphis, the "Hluft' City;" Louisville, the "Falls City;" Savannah, the "Forest City;" New Orleans, the "Crescent City," and so on to the end of the chapter. Atlanta, Birmingham anil Chattanooga are the three cities which have had the most remarkable growth since the war, and Birmingham in many respects has been the most notable of the three. She well deserves the name of "Magic City." To-day she is getting still another cognomen, viz: "Boomingham." It is emphatically a boom town; everyone there is wild on the real estate question. Two years ago I thought prices at the top, but they have been going up ever since. Fabulous tales are told of fortunes made, many of which are doubtless true. Three years ago two...

Washington Letter. Washington*, March 7th, 1887. The marble hall*, of the Capitol are deserted. The 49th Congress has panned into history. What ever may be daid of the quality ot its work, it in a (act that uo previous Congress has equalled it In the amount of work accomplished.

Among the important bills passed by the present Congress are the Interstate Commerce bill, the Electoral Count bill, the Presidential Succession bill, Mexican Pension, granting html In severalty to Indians, Canadian Fishery Ketalliation bill, a bill repealing Tenure of Office Act, and one for the Increase of the Navy. Congress* failed to revise the tarriff and to reduce the war taxes, which are pouring f 100,--000,000 annually into the treasury in excess of the legitimate needs of the government.

Much interest is felt in regard to the Governor's action in the matter of Arbor Day, the recently appointed legal holiday in Massachusetts. It is understood that the selection of the special day to be observed rests with the Executive, and many belive that our misused and practically meaningless Fast Day would he on all accounts the best time for the observance of this latest addition to our list of holidays. We have at hand the last number of that excellent college journal, the Boston College Stylus. The paper is well edited, beautifully printed and is a credit alike to the college whose name it bears and to the students who so efficiently conduct it. It contains fifteen pages of interesting and timely reading matter, all of which is bright and well written, and is by long odds the handsomest college journal that conies to our table. A conference of Congregational ministers in Chicago has covered itself all over with glory by refusing lo send a message of condolence to the afflicte...

Hearing at the State House. On Wednesday last several citizens of Cambridge were heard by the Committee on Cities of the Legislature in relation to a proposed change in the matter of electing Aldermen in this city. Isaac 9.

HENRY WARD BEECHER. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 12 March 1887
HENRY WARD BEECHER. The great Brooklyn preacher is dead. In ! his pulpit but a week before, in full possession of his transcendniil mental powers— '• the natural successor of Bossuet, Massil- | Ion, Whitetield, he lies to-day in the eru- ; brace of death, the eloquent lips sealed, the , silver tongue forever silent. Thus suddenly, almost without warning, is ended a wonderful career. While Mr. Beecher's amazing gifts as a preacher are universally conceded, it i« doubtful whether the American people have ever fully recognized their vast obligation to him for services during the civil war in foreign lands, which lew | other living men could have rendered. He ' was a great natural orator; when that brutal element in the Briti-li character which hates and repudiates all appeal to reason, refused to hear the American preacher's strong statement of solid and unanswerable fact, .Mr. Bcecher refused to confess defeat at their hands ■ he insisted on a hearing, and since intellectual power and...
